ELUSIVE GEORGE was caught on the line over 7f at Wolverhampton before finding Almargo just too strong over this trip at Kempton when the remainder were out like the washing. He'll need to adapt to the conditions but there's every chance he'll do so and looks the one to be on. Yagheer made a very encouraging debut on soft ground at Doncaster before disappointing on Polytrack at Lingfield. He's the obvious threat if ready for action after his break. Tears And Rain should have more to offer this season and Unfinishedbusiness is one for the future as she ran well on her final start here in October.
